My life changed dramatically and forever when I lost TJ.

I welcome you to follow along as I adjust to my "new normal".

It is not all puppies and ice cream but it is my life....real and honest.

Last Pool Party of Summer

 Labor Day is unofficially the end of summer, even in Arizona. It is September when we begin to drop out of the One Hundred Teens and this week we are even into the low 90's. I love summer and I always have. If it stayed in the low 100's year around I would be one happy girl. This year I took the Friday before Labor Day off so I could have a 4 day weekend. Good idea in theory, but I ended up in the pool too much on Friday and Saturday, so by the time Sunday rolled around for my pool party I was too burnt to get in the sun.

Enjoy the snapshots of my end of summer pool party. Of course Tater Tot enjoyed the pool and all his friends too! It was a great day and I am ready for it to warm back up already!


Gee am I going to miss summer. But, Labor Day also means I need to get my chimney sweep out and start looking for good seasoned wood to heat the house with this winter. Nothing is more cozy than a warm fire in the house. Time marches on.....

  2. oh my. you ARE a heat lover! wow!

  3. The warmth hasn't started to arrive here yet although the spring flowers are in bloom. Your party looks like so much fun!

  4. I love that closeup of Tater Tot, too cute! And so good to see you and your friend splashing about in the pool. But a summer in the low 100s would make you happy?!! Not me, 80s is more my style.
